    CoScale is designed specifically to monitor container and microservices environments managed by Kubernetes ecosystem.

    Progress WhatsUp Gold

    [Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold)] is good for what it is. An inexpensive but accurate monitor for alerting on systems and services. However, it is time consuming to configure, The GUI leaves a lot to be desired and the formatting for txt alerts stinks (I just use it now as an alert to check my email to view the actual alert.)

    Pros

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
    • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Progress WhatsUp Gold

    • Monitoring the connection; performance, switching, and issues. We use a broadband connection for our primary and a cellular backup for the secondary. While we use routing protocols to make this switch and WhatsUp isn't used for Syslog monitoring. it alerts us within seconds.
    • Backup configurations and archiving. WhatsUp does this particularly well. I use it for both Cisco routers and switches.
    • The diagram feature is nice. Though I don't use it as much because of the size of our structure, it does come in handy for mapping routes of all traffic.

    Cons

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
    • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.

    Progress WhatsUp Gold

    • Navigating the new WhatsUp Gold 2018 is a bit complicated and not user-friendly. The best part about using a software is the user's ability to use it with ease.
    • You cannot click sites being monitored from Map Dashboard View. This feature was previously possible in the older version.

    We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

    Alternatives Considered

    CoScale (discontinued)

    CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

    Progress WhatsUp Gold

    Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold) is more network focused than some of the other products we looked at, which had basic capabilities but were not as strong on the reporting or programmatic resolution of issues. Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold) is cost effective compared to some of the other upmarket solutions.

    Return on Investment

    CoScale (discontinued)

    • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
    • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.

    Progress WhatsUp Gold

    • Alerts IT team members when things go down after regular business hours. IT team is able to fix the issue before users arrive the next day.
    • Saves on system downtime and lost productivity
    • Remote monitoring means less staff hours spent checking for potential problems.
